Rock Hard 4x4 is very proud to offer the strongest Rear Frame Brace Kit for your decades old Jeep frame!

The RH4x4 Rear Frame Brace Kit strengthens your factory rear cross member by bracing it directly to your frame rails.

The rear cross member twists over time and with the addition of a heavier aftermarket rear bumper, like our RH-2001-C Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier, you are adding upwards of 100 lbs to a frame that's decades old. Beef up your rear end with the addition of our Frame Brace Kit.

Strength and Function
Your rear bumper has the potential to take more abuse than any other body armor on your Jeep. Whether its on road traffic collisions or off road rock damage, you need some serious armor to keep you safe. Brace that major upgrade by bolting our heavy duty bracket to your frame rails and the backside of your thin cross member.

What comes in every kit:
  • Rear Frame Brace Brackets
  • Hardware
  • Installation Instructions

Three Reasons Why:
  • Strengthens rear cross member
  • Powder coated for weather resistance
  • Unmatched quality and fitment

Rock Hard 4x4 Heavy Duty Frame Kits:

For Wranglers and Jeep CJ's running heavier / larger spare tires, Tank Mounts, or Rock Rack Cargo Baskets should consider our Frame Kits. These help support your rear bumper to your frame. All are bolt on except the RH-2001-YJ which requires welding.

RH-2001-TJ - Jeep Wrangler TJ/LJ 1997 - 2006
RH-2001-YJ - Jeep Wrangler YJ 1987 - 1995
RH-2001-CJ - Jeep CJ 1976 - 1986

In the News:

JP Magazine, July 2007
"With a door-striker style latch, a swing-arm stop that has more metal in it than most new cars, a beefy hold open bolt, and top end reinforcement on the hinge, this thing should last longer than your Jeep."

AWESOME products!!!!!
Used your heavy duty frame brace kit to mount my ROCKHARD rear bumper & tire carrier assembly, which was purchased from your distributor Quadratec, onto my 1977 CJ-5 Jeep. I also installed your matching front bumper. Everything looks AWESOME! The only thing that's a bit disappointing is that the rear bumper doesn't include your "ROCKHARD" name plate (front bumper did!). Can you supply one to m

Overall fit was good, slightly off on the hole dimension. Good material and design. Less than clear instructions on my application. I am happy with the product.

Price was right. Good quality complete kit. Only negative thing was it took a week to ship so I am glad I was not in a hurry for the product.
